"Before I was stressing about high school, but now I WANT to go! You get easy tips to be well organised in high school and you learn about your diary and timetable."
Alex, Year 6 Student
"Before I was very worried about the stress of high school. But I learnt lots of different ways to make things easier, like with homework. I'll start high school with a better understanding of just about everything!"
Holly, Year 6 Student
"Before the workshop, I was worried about high school. Now I know I will always have someone there to help me and I feel like my worries are gone. I think every person in Year 6 should do this workshop."
Jonathon, Year 6 Students
"It helped me to express my feelings about high school, which I would never really do.
It is very helpful."
Neena, Year 6 Student
"Before, I was worried about high school. Now I know that I can do anything if I try.
This workshop gives kids confidence!""
Matt, Year 6 Student
"My daughter came home after the workshop feeling more confident. A lot of her queries were answered, and the anxieties behind them have disappeared. As a parent, I am extremely grateful that an experience like this was available to her.
I believe it is a very valuable program."
Kelly Gibbs, Parent of Year 6 Student

He is now less anxious to begin his new school journey."
M. Ahearne, Parent of Year 6 Student

Thank you for such a valuable program."
Kim Constantinou, Year 6 Parent
"Get Set For High School is different because it deals with the anxieties that Year 6 students often experience and provides them with practical strategies to assist with the transition to high school.
We had an overwhelming positive response from teachers, parents and, most importantly, the students."
Patricia Laidler, School Principal
"Thank you Jenny. Your practical and supportive ideas to assist them in their transition ensure that the students not only have a better understanding about what they face entering high school but they feel better prepared."
